SULLIVAN COUNTY, TN (WJHL) – Sullivan County Highway Department officials confirmed a sinkhole has formed along a portion of Lucy Road in Kingsport.
Chris Salley with the highway department said the sinkhole was approximately 3 feet by 3 feet and was located in the 200 block of Lucy Road.
We had previously reported that the sinkhole is impacting only one lane on the road at this time. But the road has been closed at Lucy Road and Bloomingdale. Pauline Road to Pandora Road is also closed.
Officials say that a water line break is what has caused the sinkhole to form, and this morning the highway commission and Sullivan Co. foreman will meet to talk about a stabilizing plan.
Once they have formed a plan the roads should open back up.
